Dear Members and Industry Colleagues

The RICS has formed an internationally accredited panel of dispute resolution specialists, who will work in tandem with the South African Government’s Voluntary Court Mediation scheme, which encourages built environment cases to be resolved by industry expert mediators. To support this initiative, the RICS Dispute Resolution team will be travelling to Johannesburg in October to deliver two intensive mediation courses:

This 3-day training course will provide you with an introduction to mediation as an alternative method of dispute resolution.

Price: R12 000 (no VAT)
Contact: Alexandra de Beer at or on +27 (0)21 975 5537

RICS Accredited Mediator Certificate
